No doubt about it, wine is a complicated hobby. Once you start down the rabbit hole there’s no telling how far you’ll go. One day you’re chugging from a box and the next you’re stashing verticals of Barolo in your Eurocave. Even if you’ve been drinking and collecting wine for years, there’s always always something new to learn about wine. For those of you wondering where to start, we’re here to help.

The grapes, learn about wine.

How many wine grapes do you think exist? 1,000? 5,000? 10,000? It’s the last one. Ten thousand known varieties of wine grapes out there! Crazy! No wonder the world of wine can seem so daunting. The good news? The best way to learn about wine is to taste it. Not such a bad proposition, right? Also, you won’t find anywhere close to the 10,000 types of wine at your local store. But even with a small fraction the choice can be overwhelming. Learn about some of the most popular wines below.
